I went out to a yakiniku restaurant with my wife to enjoy yakiniku yesterday. "Yakiniku" is Korean-style grilled beef and there are a lot of cook-it-yourself yakiniku restaurants all over Japan. The first case of "mad cow desease" was confirmed in Japan last year and this has led to the reluctance among consumers to eat beef. I hear a number of yakiniku restaurants have gone bankrupt because of this. The restaurant to which we go once in a while seems to be in good shape.

The World Cup: It came as a great surprise that France lost to Senegal. I'm looking forward to the England-Sweden match today.
